De Niro is insane in his role as Travis Bickle, but he's not the only brilliant character in this film: 1970s New York City comes to life as a dirty, crime-infested world of extremes, a world that drives Bickle to the actions he commits, all thanks to Scorsese's brilliant direction. Few other films come close to the slowly growing insanity that this film provides, seemingly without effort, as it lets these two insane characters bounce off each other and grow.

On non-existence and its consequences. The greatest American film of the 1970s, I consider that this film is also in some way "about" America, if not indeed more or less Scorsese's response to the American involvement in Vietnam. Compare this to my comment on BLUE VELVET.

DeNiro's acting is top notch and this movie really gives you the gritty feel of 1970's New York. Not as violent as some reviews make it out to be, but it uses the violence it does show to great effect. The supporting cast is uniformly excellent and provides all sorts of contrasts to DeNiro's increasingly withdrawn and dilusional Travis Bickle.

Film's greatest portrayal of loneliness. The tragedy of Travis Bickle is that his desperation and violent impulses, unthinkable to most, stem from such universally held feelings. In Ebert's words, "We have all felt as alone as Travis. Most of us are better at dealing with it." Scorsese, De Niro, Schrader, Herrmann: four titans of cinema, none of whom was ever better.

Frustration and fascination with the reduction of relationships to economic exchange. Herrmann's swanky score and Scorsese's stylistic verve ensure there's never a dull moment, and then there's De Niro's simmering performance - "They...cannot...touch...her..."

Scorsese captured the New York night life like no other, but one thing that I like to discuss with others is whether or not Travis Bickle is a hero or a villain. I mean on the AFI list, he is the 18th worst villain, but in my opinion, he is a hero. Sure he's fucking crazy, but as weird as this sounds, I feel for Travis Bickle. I can totally understand his views on his city, and how he wants to get rid of all the scum. One of the greatest characters in cinema, De Niro works his magic.

Much like the novella that inspired it, this is a tragic & disturbing tale about the sort of forgotten, broken people who cannot find their way back into the world. It is the greatest cinematic depiction of the darkest and most violent recesses of the human mind, aided considerably by Schrader's brilliant script & DeNiro's iconic performance. The increasingly Hellish setting mirrors Bickle's fracturing mind, making his losing battle for his own soul as terrifying as it is sympathetic.

A frightening experience into the human psyche. You're liable to sympathize with the troubled Travis Bickle as he desperately seeks some kind of human connection for the sake of saving his own soul. He fails, and continues to drown in a black concrete abyss, an urban nightmare, surrounded by pimps and murderers. He roams the city nights, watching through the window of his cab. Watching, but never touching, never feeling. He is alone. We depart with him as he slowly slips into a violent insanity.

Travis Pickle is someone who's not basically bad. From the first minute Travis wants to change the world, from something bad and rotten into a better place. He helps a whore to get out of her misery and so on. But in the end he has to face the reality and realize, that nothing can be changed with words, and that most of the people in N.Y arrange themselfes with a life full of shit. So Prickle reforms to a man, who jugdes the world with a gun in his hand. Maybe Scorsese's best movie.

The ultimate morality tale of how taking a date to a porn movie (seems like a bad idea) leads to you being a hero. But beyond that it is the epitome of how to take your fucking time when making a movie. Between the acting, directing, and score I was ultimately blown away. It really is brilliant and I will probably be whistling that sax part till the day I die.

Strong acting, gritty circumstances, human characters, awesome film !!! and you gotta love that Scorsese cameo.

Scorsese's first undisputed masterpiece. A hallucinatory spiraling look into the mind of a man who is mentally not all there (to say the least). The photography, screenplay, direction, and acting are all top notch. Although not all that pleasant an experience, this is a cornerstone of American (and worldwide) filmmaking.

This movie entrances you in its mood of uncertainty. Robert De Niro plays Travis Bickle, one of the most interesting main characters in any movie, and especially for 1976. The ideals in this film are well ahead of its time, and the easy jazz music (the final score from Bernard Hermann before his death) captures you into a dream-like state.

Over forty years later and still the most prophetic vision of our present, what was then the future. Travis Bickle is all of us -- lonely, isolated, in need of a connection and ready to fight anyone who he perceives as denying him what is his. Should be mandatory viewing in every high school, every college and every household. This movie is a manifesto on how to live and react to a world that despises you -- just be sure to channel it for good.

A beautiful cinematic representation of the complete mental deconstruction of one human being in a world where the filth is piled neck high every direction you look. DeNiro never fails to fall perfectly in step with each character he portrays, and Bickle is no exception. I found myself feeling the disgust and hatred he felt as each scene went buy. One of Scorsese's finest.

On rewatching I am just blown away by De Niro - he gives one of the most intense performances of all time, and within the framework of Scorsese's sprawling, visceral love letter to the bloodstained gutters of New York. Coming the year after the fall of Saigon and two after Watergate, cinema has never been rawer in exploring the implosive madness and violence generated by modern life. Perfectly demonstrated five years later by John Hinckley; he should have shot a pimp instead.

Just who does Martin Scorsese have to kill to get an Oscar? Fantastic, career defing role by Robert De Niro, expanding on the loneliness and isolation felt the now unwanted soldier of Vietnam. Refferenced by people who have'nt seen it, and quoted frequently by people who have, it only remains for me to avoid the "you talking to me" line that so many others will use in reviewing this. Oh bugger. Also, check out a very young Harvey Keitel getting the full DeNiro stare.

A film so ripe with subtext it practically oozes off the screen. Exploring existential themes, Scorsese traverses traditional genre territory, with Bickle the self-proclaimed cowboy in a noir world. It's less about society than about a rupturing psyche for which DeNiro skillfully wins sympathy. This, smartly, enhances the shock and disgust later on, also facilitated by gradual genre shifts. Several scenes are dull. Luckily, memorable supporting turns by Foster, Keitel and Shepherd keep it going.

DeNiro is intense in this one. Really, the only movie where his acting can rival this performance is Raging Bull maybe. Everything else about the movie is great too though, from the direction and camera work, the script, the themes and commentary going on. Anf perhaps most importantly, all of this makes for a thoroughly engaging film. This is really an amazing movie.

Taxi Driver is haunting. There isn't a better word to describe this grisly, subtle thriller. Scorsese takes the reigns with De Niro for the second time and in most ways this is their most effective work to date. Travis Bickle as a character is about as captivating as I can think of, and while his life is alienating it's entirely relative at the same time; that's probably what's so creepy about the whole movie in the first place.

The sleazy and haunting urban atmosphere created by this film's gritty cinematography and beautifully melancholic soundtrack is incredible and thoroughly compelling. The plot, meanwhile, is quite loose and meandering with no real destination, so the film could only fully succeed and captivate with a strong central character study: Fortunately, it has just that, with De Niro consistently excellent in his many solo scenes ("You talkin' to me?") as the unnervingly unstable and violent Travis.

This is a masterpiece, but its amazing just how unconventional it is. Between this and other films set in 1970s-80s New York, with no qualms about showing its nasty side, there is a weirdness to the place on film which Scorsese's film could only be created from. Everything in this - De Niro's performance, the script - is not just intense but grotesque in a way that feels real, contrasted by an elegant score from old Hollywood cinema that shows something human beneath its nightmarish world.

This is no condemnation of New York's dark side; the filth described is all within the head of Travis Bickle, a character who seems incapable of connecting with others in the way we take for granted. All of his major conversations seem strained; while he mimics the social gestures of others, there's no substance to what he's saying. He doesn't understand how other people relate, but he's too egocentric to realize he's doing it wrong, and that the people he'd like to help don't want him at all.

Definitely an original movie, but Bickle's character is one that I failed to feel for at any moment except the ending. It's climax is drawn out, and the majority of the movie seems pointless, actually, pretty much all of it is pointless. It's not terrible, but nothing worthy of praise.

He nearly lost me when he took the gorgeous young Cybill Shepherd to the blue movie. The rest is so iconic that once viewed you can never forget. Robert De Niro brought to the role a presence that was both subtle & intense. His desperate desire to do something great drove him to extreme action & he was committed to seeing it through. The ironic ending is one of the most memorable in film. Excellent atmosphere & music. Good directing, writing & performances.

A visually stunning story about a descent into madness in the big city. 'Taxi Driver' is from when movies dared to linger. Add Bernard Herrmann's incredible score, both mysterious, magical and even romantic, to the mix, and you have one seriously hypnotic experience of a psychotic violent fantasy. Scorsese was arguably never better, and when De Niro was once considered one of the greatest actors of all time, this movie is most likely why. You talking to me?

Seduced by Herrmann's score and repulsed by Scorsese's vision of New York City smut, for the viewer Travis Bickle becomes a pitiable and tragic figure. To evoke empathy in an extreme sociopath was audacious in 1976, and now it bears reinvigorated significance in the age of mass gun violence, when the media dares not tread beneath the pathological surface of these persons and events. This was then, and remains now, a singular film.

If "Taxi Driver" were made today, Travis Bickle would be wearing a cape and trying to build bombs. Thankfully, 1976 allowed for some ambiguity in the character. The film is loaded with tension, never quite sure when Bickle will be set off. Never quite sure when he's armed. Never quite sure exactly what he's planning. Nothing is handed to you, outside of the opening scene. The ending is ironic in how a matter of moments would have made Bickle a villian, if he could only get his gun out faster.

Great moody atmosphere that puts you in a state like only getting 2 hours of sleep and running on pure adrenaline. Everything's presented in broad, vague situations with hints of paranoia to them, seeing into Travis' mind. I like that you really only get Travis' perspective, as the scenes with out him could just be within his mind as well. You see his inner troubles and flaws but you're always wondering what he's going to do next still.

Overrated but not because of Scorsese. Actually Scorsese's directing is probably the best part of the film. The film quickly looses my interest after the first say 45 minutes or whenever Travis stops seeing Betsy. I actually felt the length of the movie was needed. The film just had too many scenes that lacked character development, which could have given the film more meaning and made it less boring. Ultimately this film takes too long to say nothing. It culminates in a horrendous ending.

"Taxi Driver" is a showcase for both Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. Apart from the famous "You talkin' to me" scene (that is famous for a reason) there are many other things to admire and ponder on about this brilliantly made New York vengeance odyssey starring a disturbed taxi driver, who, frustrated by the sins of urban life, resorts to violence. The final act is bloody brilliant (emphasis on bloody) and might very well be the most accomplished sequence Scorsese has ever directed.

It's easy to see why this is so overrated as critics must've spooged at the groundbreaking in-your-face violence matched with Arthouse pacing & ambiguous ending. Still, it's amazing to see societal ugliness presented with no politically correct hand-wringing. Schrader's script gives the impression that he identifies with Bickle more than he doesn't, & seems to suggest that in a crazy world, only the crazy man is sane.

It begins as the solitariness of Paul Schrader, who saw the vivid yellow cab as a premature coffin and a symbol of paranoia, a place where the rearview mirror takes us straight into the driver's bleak soul. Taxi Driver is a great film, in which there was a clear and willing glimpse of disorder as the heart of America. And I doubt that Schrader or Scorsese could have done it alone - so the lesson emerges that even in this symphony of isolation, the contacts in life are vital if mysterious.

A Scorsese/de Niro combo that hits hard and hits low. This movie is dark, violent and brooding, yet paradoxically it still leaves enough room for a softer side. Until all Hell breaks loose, of course. Few movies have portrayed a decaying urban landscape quite as well as Taxi Driver did. And Jodie Foster's performance as a teenage prostitute is strong enough to stimulate anyone's darker, primal urges.

A film that nobody can quite make head nor tail of, but doing so would be forgetting the whole essence of what makes it such a classic. Saying that, I can't help but feel a little let down after seeing a film as hailed as this and having doubts over its authenticity as a masterpiece. One thing is clear though, it's a very well constructed film. The performances are all great with De Niro bringing such a haunted and mentally traumatized character to life as nobody else could. Go get that scum.

One of the greatest films about urban isolation, in turn one of my favourite film themes.

Nothing much going on here. The subject matter is interesting but not enough to make a two-hour film, the pacing at times too slow, the opening and closing sequences too obvious from a directorial aspect. The cast (especially Jodie Foster and scene-stealer Albert Brooks) is fine, while there are good scenes and some particularly notable dialogues, but, as a whole, "Taxi Driver" is too uneven and fragmentary to become a great film.

A pretty terrible, wandering plot that doesn't seem to know where it's going, makes you assume all sorts of things that it never explains. There's no character development because you don't know anything about Travis, and you have no real idea why he gets so mad. He does all sorts of ridiculous things for no apparent reason. Then, at the end, he's miraculously fine for, again, no reason. What a let-down.

I cannot find one single scene in this film that has no meaning to it. If there was one movie I could call perfect, it would be Taxi Driver.
